The Hub

In support of community engagement efforts, The Calgary Police Service is pleased to introduce The Hub Messaging System, a community automated notification system that delivers vital information to residents and business owners within the City of Calgary.

The Hub Messaging System will utilize sophisticated software by strategically sending information to a selected geographic area made possible through a community member sign-up webpage. Messages will be prepared and delivered by the Calgary Police Service through email, voice, and text messaging. Message types and user delivery profiles can be tailored to meet the needs and preferences for each registered community member. Community members can choose to change their profile or unsubscribe at any time.

Traffic Issues

As Calgary has continued to grow, Mount Pleasant has seen an increase in traffic volume. While much of this traffic does not cause concern, there there are times where issues arise.

We encourage residents with concerns to report their traffic issues to the Calgary Police Service, by searching Traffic Service Requests on Calgary.ca.

If you have questions or want more information on how the MPCA manages traffic issues please contact Nelson Hein at ptluse@mpca.ca

Residential Break-and-Enters

Many house break-and-enters are committed by culprits looking for easy opportunities — if you take those opportunities away, you can help protect yourself and your property. The majority of house break-and-enters occur during the day time when residents are away; however, they can also occur at night, usually when no one is home.

The Calgary Police Service suggests these quick and easy ways to help protect your home:

Mount Pleasant Residents: “There has been an increased criminal activity in the community.”

Over the last several weeks the Calgary Police Service has noticed that an unusually high number of Break & Enters are occurring within the Mount Pleasant area. There are two types of occurrences happening.

1) Unforced entries in to the rear detached  garages. This means that the man door or the overhead door of the garage has been left unlocked or inadvertently left open. 

2) Forced entries to garages, where the criminals are prying or kicking the doors in order to gain access.

The first type is very easily remedied-  this accounts for almost  70% of the incidents occurring

a) PLEASE LOCK YOUR DOORS, this includes your garage, house and cars.

b) Don’t leave anything of value inside your vehicle. We are finding that people tend to leave wallets, extra car keys, cell phones, purses and garage door openers inside their car, (that you forgot to lock),  parked on the street or driveway or even inside the garage The theft of any of these items will give someone access to your home, garage, your car, banking information and identity. Etc. etc., etc. …. 

c) make sure that your garage overhead door closes completely after exiting and before driving off.

YOU are your best defense against this every happening to you.

The second, 2) is a little harder to solve;  The solution to this is being vigilant and watching out for your neighbour’s. Kicking in a garage door creates noise.

a) If you hear strange noises coming from yours or your neighbour’s house, go and check on it.

b) You as residents know which vehicles belong on your street and in your alleyways. If you see a strange vehicle parked behind your house, go out and check on it. 99% of the time this vehicle will be doing something legitimate. It’s the 1% we are looking for.

c) As community residents you also know what is “ normal ” for your street and community. If you see a house or persons that doesn’t  fit in with the “normal” in the neighbourhood, start a conversation with your neighbor and see what they have noticed.

d)  If you have concerns about a person or house please send Cst. Gord Denison and e-mail outlining the issues and location.

Let’s all work together in making our neighbourhood a safer place.

Cut the costs of vandalism!

How to reduce vandalism in your neighborhood

Did you know...

  • That vandalism is never a victimless crime? 
  • Vandalism takes time and money to clean up or repair, whether it happens on private or public property.
  • Vandalism that includes hateful messages can hurt individuals or groups of people.
  • Vandalism can be dangerous, too - how would you feel if a child was injured because a stop sign was removed, for example, or if someone couldn't call 9-1-1 because a phone had been broken?

Every member of the community can help prevent vandalism. Here's how!

Lock it or lose it!

Fast, easy tips to protect your vehicle against theftIt takes just seconds for a criminal to break into your vehicle. Less than a minute later, your valuables - even your entire vehicle - could be gone. It can take weeks to settle an auto theft insurance claim, and since claims are usually based on your vehicle's value rather than its replacement cost, it could leave you thousands of dollars short - all for the sake of a few oments of your time.

Since vehicle theft is often a crime of opportunity, the Calgary Police Service recommends these measures to make your vehicle less attractive to thieves.
